Our Podiatrists Can Treat Your Ruptured Achilles Tendon Immediately

"If you’ve ruptured your Achilles tendon, it is an emergency. We want to take care of you immediately. Get into the office. From that, we’ll evaluate the tendon. We’ll start with X-rays to see if you have a fracture. The Achilles tendon is a very strong tendon at the back of the heel. You typically will feel a loss of the continuity of the tendon. From there we have to order an MRI to see the damage. Do not try to walk on it without crutches. It needs a thorough evaluation, possibly surgical invention if it’s ruptured. Continue to ice and rest it until you’re seen in the office."
